It's vital to stay focused, composed, and act swiftly in such situations. Knowing what to do ahead of time can be very helpful.

Dental emergencies can occur unexpectedly, requiring immediate attention.

At our Salem Oregon practice, our dedicated emergency dentists and team of doctors are ready to assist you during moments of discomfort.

What is a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is any situation involving the teeth, gums, mouth, or jaw that demands immediate attention from a dental professional.

These emergencies may include severe toothaches, knocked-out teeth, broken or cracked teeth, abscesses, excessive bleeding from the mouth, or injuries to the mouth, jaw, or face

Timely treatment of dental emergencies is crucial to alleviate pain, prevent further complications, including potential tooth loss, and preserve oral health.

When to Call An Emergency Dentist

We address various dental emergencies. Situations in which you should seek immediate dental care include:

Knocked-Out Tooth

A knocked-out tooth requires immediate attention, preferably within an hour, for a higher chance of successful reinsertion.

Handle the tooth carefully, holding it by the crown to avoid touching the roots. Rinse the tooth gently with milk or saliva if dirty, avoiding the removal of tissue fragments.

Keep the tooth moist, ideally in milk, or attempt to reset it into its socket before seeking assistance from our emergency dentist.

Cracked or Chipped Tooth

Chipped or cracked teeth are prone to infection and decay, necessitating prompt repair to prevent further complications and potential tooth loss.

If you have a cracked or chipped tooth, rinse your mouth with warm water, apply gentle pressure to stop bleeding, and use a cold compress for swelling.

Save any broken tooth fragments for potential repair by our dentist.

Tooth Aches

Persistent severe tooth pain may indicate an underlying issue requiring urgent evaluation and relief. Using a cold compress can help alleviate discomfort before seeking professional care.

Abscesses, characterized by pus pockets due to infection at the tooth root's tip, constitute a dental emergency. Seek immediate care for abscessed gums or teeth to prevent further infection and complications.

Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries, such as cut gums, cheeks, or lips, require prompt treatment to prevent infection and relieve pain.

When to Visit an Emergency Room

Severe facial trauma, like a broken jaw, necessitates immediate attention at an emergency room for comprehensive care.
